    Sleeper Blue Dot Goby Gasping

    My sleeper blue dot goby had been gasping for the last 2 nights. It stays in its burrow all day long, after lights out, opens up the burrow and keeps opening and closing its mouth rapidly and heavily. I can only see it at night. I had this goby for a year now, 5.5 inches long, was very active...

    Defective pistol shrimp

    I've had a yellow watchman goby and a tiger pistol for roughly 5 years. They lived great together doing what they do. After reading about their lifespan and not seeing the shrimp near the tunnel holes for about 6 months I figured he had died. I decided to get the goby a new buddy. They paired...

    Multiple shrimp goby pairs?

    I'm a big fan of gobies and I'd like to acquire a handful of the ones I find to be the coolest. I love western Pacific white caps, flaming prawn gobies, Yasha's, Dracula's, watchmen, and more. I am considering getting several gobies since I know that even in tanks under 100 gallons, multiple...

    Yellow watchman goby friend help

    I have quarantined a yellow Watchmen goby for over a month. I recently put them in my tank about a week ago and he's having a hard time adjusting. He eats the food when it floats by him but he doesn't actively hunt it down. He stays at the very top of the dark corner of my tank. Behind my...

    More Clown Goby Questions

    I just got a citrinis clown goby today. I dont have any corals yet, but I am going to get some very soon. Is there any types of LPS or soft corals they prefer to perch on, or will they perch on all kinds of coral.

    Midas Blenny and Goby comparability? 31G

    I’ve read in the past that blenny and goby shouldn’t be together, however recently I have read that as they occupy different space they get along fine? Any experiences/suggestions? I have plenty of live rock, caves, holes, ledges and areas that break apart the whole tank. If this could work...

    Sand Sifting Goby

    I’m looking for a hardy sand sifting Goby that will last. I’ve been hearing that sand sifting gobies tend not to last long because the sand bed gets cleaned and then it just wastes away. Is there any sand sifting gobies that are hardier than others? I’ve heard the sleeper head sifting goby tends...
